    We are looking for a highly intelligent, self-motivated individual that possess expert project management, task management, operational skills, knowledge of software engineering with experience in coding or QA, extreme attention to detail, and thrives in a fast-paced virtual environment to support our COO.


    The right candidate to be the Chief of Staff will interact daily to prioritize and project management work with top executives. She/he will assist the planning, coordination, and execution of business initiatives including software engineering projects.

    • Able to elicit required decisions to ensure your commitments are met
    • Create dashboards and provide deep dive analysis on key metrics that allows identification of any risk or deviation that prevents achievement of COO’s goals

    • Computer Sciences Bachelor Degree or Higher
    • Management Experience within an International or Multinational Company
    • 2+ years of experience in coding for software development
